    I need some info on everything to do with incubating and hatching chicks. Like how do I know if the male and female have mated, especially if there are other hens around? What do I need to incubate and how long? So if anyone has links to site with info let me know?

    There is a sticky at the top of this section that has links to many, many threads that you probably will find many if not all the answers to your questions.

    LOL what Katy said.

    That Hatching Sticky has the best information all of us have gathered and discussed over a pretty long time. It's the fastest way to learn the most - follow all those links - should take you DAYS to read them all. Then ask any questions you have. We'll be here.

    And Welcome [​IMG] to a place with people just as nuts as you are about to be.
